COLORADO SPRINGS - A white supremacist gang member wanted in connection with the murder of Colorado's prisons chief was arrested Thursday in Colorado Springs, 9Wants to Know confirmed Thursday.

Colorado Springs police assisted the Colorado Fugitive Location and Apprehension Group in arresting Thomas Guolee, 31.

This arrest comes almost a week after James Lohr, 47, was arrested in Colorado Springs.

Both men are believed to be part of the same prison gang whose members included Evan Ebel.

Ebel is the only suspect authorities have named in the death of Tom Clements on March 19 and of father of three Nate Leon, two days earlier.

Ebel was shot and killed in a shootout with Texas authorities on Thursday, March 21.

Guolee's mother said Thursday night that she is relieved that her son is in custody.

"Thank god. It was way overdue. I just want him to get things taken care of so he can be a part of his daughter's life. My heart's been hurting. Now that I know he's in custody, I can kinda take a sigh of relief," Debbie Eck told 9Wants to Know.
